I am hosting with Brinkster and they have confirmed that my user name and passwords are correct as well as MYsql db settings.
This is what my first line of code looks like for the wp-config.php
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'wordpresss'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'UN'); // Your MySQL username
// ...and password
.... and so on...
Does php create its own db? do I have to create the db on the server. I have already tried this and it still does not work.
And ofcourse this is the Classic error message that I am getting
Error establishing a database connection...
